Résumé
Eighty-four species of benthic and one species of planktonic Foraminifera,classified under 40 genera and 34 families reported for Costa Rica are listed in thispaper. These lists are based on literature data and ongoing studies. All (except forfour species from the Caribbean) are reports from the Pacific Ocean, and most arefrom offshore or have no specific indication of where in Costa Rica the Foraminiferawere collected. Of the other Central American countries there is little informationexcept from Panama. More research is needed on Foraminifera, since they may bea predominant group in some areas and ecosystems, for example the meiofauna ofCaño Island, and much more research is need on planktonic Foraminifera.
